Living with PTSD and TBIhttp://armyreservistwife.blogspot.com/
Uncle Sam's Mistress, author of Living with PTSD and TBI is an Army Reservist, Disabled Veteran's wife and advocate for families who were reunited with soldiers who returned home from war as different people. Through brutal honesty and candid details on her blog she has given both spouse and Veteran readers an insider's view into the battles with a broken system that doesn't know how to heal our Veterans or help their families as well as what the real stories are behind the curtains of somewhat taboo subjects. She is a proud mother to three boys, full-time caregiver to her husband, and gives a voice to all those who are unable to find theirs. She is also an volunteer member of Family of a Vet.com.
This blog doesn't pretend that PTSD and trauma recovery are any form of catnip. Rather, it offers great thanks for the military men who sacrificed much for our freedom.

Wife of a Wounded Soldierhttp://www.wifeofawoundedsoldier.com
I am a wife of a severely injured soldier. I have been married to my husband, my hero, for six years. Throughout our nine year relationship we were separated over two years due to Operation Iraqi Freedom 1 & 5. He aslo deployed to Bosnia before I met him. My husband was severely injured by an improvised explosive device (IED) July 28th, 2006 and spent 20 months rehabilitating at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. I received my B.S. in Social work in 2005 from Austin Peay State University and I work for Operation Homefront's Wounded Warrior Wives Program. I have volunteered with a therapeutic riding academy that assists those with disabilities by riding horses. Bryan was active duty army for 12 years and was medically retired in 2008. Bryan works on bomb robots with a defense contractor. Our life has been a series of ups and downs. I have waited on him to return from war, learned how to accept our new normal after injuries, processed grief, and made some of the most amazing friends because of our tragedy. Our story is one of love, loss, hope and perseverance.
